During a session at the House of Lords in the United Kingdom, members of Parliament and representatives from the Iranian student community discussed the pivotal role of universities and Iranian students in the uprising for freedom and democracy in Iran. Speakers highlighted the resilience of the Iranian people, especially youth and students, in resisting the oppressive regime.

Baroness O’Loan described Iran’s universities as centers for establishing a democratic republic, drawing from her academic background and recent participation in the International Women’s Day Conference in Paris. She emphasized the rejection of the regime’s legitimacy by the Iranian people and endorsed Mrs. Maryam Rajavi’s Ten-Point Plan for Iran’s future.

MP Jim Shannon stressed the importance of human rights and religious freedom in a democratic society, condemning Iran’s rigged electoral processes and expressing solidarity with Iranians striving for democracy. He praised Iranian women’s leadership in the fight for justice and highlighted universities as hubs of resistance.

MP Martyn Day expressed unwavering support for Iranians’ struggle for freedom, acknowledging their hardships under the oppressive regime and commending the courage of Iranian Resistance Units. He called for international support and action, including proscribing the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

Baron Whitty underscored growing dissatisfaction with the regime and emphasized the need for international solidarity with Iranian activists. Robert Ward highlighted the challenge posed by the Iranian regime globally and advocated for Mrs. Rajavi’s Ten-Point Plan as a democratic alternative.

The session also included voices from the Iranian British community, university professors, scholars, and human rights activists, reaffirming their commitment to the struggle for freedom and democracy in Iran.
